Homemade Meatballs

Food As Medicine:

Grass fed beef is rich in anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids as well as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA has been shown to fight cancer, aid in weight loss, and help support insulin sensitivity which helps support blood sugar regulation. Grass fed beef also contains higher amounts of vitamin A and E when compared to grain fed beef. #beef
